Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    I made this with Lorna Doone shortbread cookies and wound up with too much butter, not enough crumb. To be fair, she warns this is a possibility with this recipe and that bakers should beware of the crust seems imbalanced.

    Good crust. Used graham crackers in Coconut lime pie. Could have used a bit more butter.
